This gorgeous early 19th C Blue & White Dessert Dish in Lozenge Form has a molded edge and molded foliate interior border. It is printed with transfers in "The Villager" pattern, and embellished with a bit of gilding. "TURNER" is impressed on the base, which is Godden's mark 3896. The earthenware dish dates c. 1770.

John Turner of Lane End, Longton, Staffordshire was one of the earliest potters to make blue & white printed pottery. When he died in 1787 the firm was continued by his two sons, William and John. According to Godden's Marks book, this company was in business from 1762-1806.

The dish is a bit over 11-3/4" long and 9" wide. It stands on a foot rim which has the blue glaze of pearlware around it.

The condition is excellent. There is a tiny nick to the glaze which you can see in my photo, and an odd mistake by the gilder on an outer side (also shown). There are no cracks, no chips, no crazing, and no repairs. The dish rings (as well as earthenware ever does) when tapped.

See Page 387 of Volume I of The Dictionary of Blue and White Printed Pottery by Coysh and Henrywood for this pattern: "The Villager". They describe it as a "rural scene which shows a villager with his wife and child, standing in front of a river with a cottage and footbridge in the background."
